A few years ago. In the dead of win
ter. Dr. M. A. Leach was out on Lake
Michigan In a friend's hut, fishing
through the Ice. Everything was pro
ceeding merrily when, says the doctor:
"There came a sudden report, sound
ing like thunder. The ice was going:
"I rushed outside, but the snow was
blinding, and I could not even see the
shore line. All around the thunderous
reports were sounding and the Ice was
quivering strangely. I was frightened,
but as there was no help for It I went
back to the but.
This was about noon. I noticed, to
my relief, that there were no cracks
coming beneath the hut. so that if the
ice did go out I should at leart be on a
Mk cake for a time. The big enkes
do not last very long in Lake Michi
gan. ! could not tell what was hap
pening outside, for the wind was
shrieking and howling horribly, and
every few seconds the ice would split
with a resounding crash. So, for lack
of something better to do, I arranged
a frying pan I had over the little stove,
and to keep up my food supply I start
ed frying some fish. In a few minutes
the place was filled with a most ap
petizing odor, which, I presume, had
something to do with what followed.
"First of all I heard a series of
low whines outside; then something
scratched at the door. I opened it In
amazement, thinking that some dog
had perhaps been lost ou the ice and
had found my hut. To my surprise,
however, n great unkempt animal en
tered and fawned about my feet, lick
ing my boots, and. although 1 hud nev
er seen one. I knew thut it was a gray
wolf. The animal seemed terrified be
yond measure end showed no sign
whatever of wildness."
As the doctor had no other weapon
than tus knife and a frozen fishing
line, he was in a qaundnry. But the
wolf seemed lonely and showed a
strong desire to make himself at home,
so they spent the night quite cbarm-
